Diced Chicken Breast
Central American Style Spice Mix
Lambs Lettuce and Bulls Blood Mix
Preheat your oven to 220°C. Chop the potato (no need to peel) into wedges about the size of your index finger. Put your wedges on a lined baking tray, season with a pinch of salt and a good grind of black pepper. Drizzle over enough oil to coat your wedges, mix well and roast on the top shelf of your oven until golden and crispy, 25-30 mins. Turn halfway through cooking.
Put the chicken in a mixing bowl and add a pinch of salt, a good grind of pepper, the Central American spice mix, half the honey and half the lime juice. Give everything a good stir to make sure the chicken is coated and leave to one side.
Pop the baby leaves in a large bowl. Remove both ends from the cucumber, halve lengthways, then slice into thin half moons. Add the cucumber to the peashoots, or keep them separate if your kids don't like both together! In a small bowl, combine the remaining lime juice and honey with the olive oil (amount specified in the ingredient list) and add a pinch of salt and pepper. This is your salad dressing (you can dress the salad later).
Heat a drizzle of oil in a frying pan on medium-high heat, once hot add the chicken to the pan. TIP: Do this in batches if your pan is small as you need to fry the chicken, not stew it! Cook, stirring, until browned and cooked through, 4-6 mins. TIP: The chicken is cooked when it is no longer pink in the middle. When your chicken is cooked, put it in another large bowl.
Pop the sour cream into another small bowl. Put the tortillas on another lined baking tray and place on the middle shelf of in your oven to warm through for a few minutes while you put your bowls of salad, chicken, sour cream and salad dressing on your table, along with a big bowl of wedges.
Assemble everything at the table. Fill your wraps with a little bit of sour cream, chicken and salad. Serve with the wedges and remaining salad as an accompaniment - dressing optional of course. Enjoy!
